RECIPE: Roasted Onion White Bean Dip

Our Instant Pot® has received a lot more love over these last few months with making a couple batches of beans each week. We usually cook up a big batch of chickpeas for hummus and save some to roast up to top our salads with. A couple of months ago, we ran out of dried…

Everything but the Kitchen Sink Soup

Hello and happy Friday, my friends! A few years ago, while following an autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet, I created a super simple soup recipe that I pretty much lived on. As time went by and I was able to incorporate more ingredients/foods into my diet, this soup grew along with me! The best part about…

RECIPE: Savory Cream of Buckwheat

If given the choice, I will 9 times out of 10 opt for a savory breakfast….especially during autumn and winter. For years I used to start my day with a smoothie (sometimes I still do), but as time went by, I noticed they didn’t keep me satisfied for very long AND they’re cold! Mornings here…

RECIPE: Tahini Mocha

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with tahini. The first recipe I ever published here, many years ago, did indeed use tahini. I even joke with people that if I ever write a book, it will be all about tahini! Funny story….have you ever gotten so excited about something such as a book, a…

Strawberry Kombucha Pops

I don’t know what it’s like by you, but here in Bend, OR, it is HOT. It feels like it’s been near 100° for at least two weeks and since we don’t have AC, all I’ve been living on is smoothies and salads…and sitting in front of a fan…or in a cramped kiddie pool with…

Grain-Free Snickerdoodles

Crispy outer edges, buttery, pillow-y, soft + chewy center with the perfect amount of sweet and salty. I think these might be my new favorite chocolate-free cookie! Willow was skeptical at first because they were missing chocolate chips or a chocolate coating, but I convinced her to take a bite…she went back for a second…

Chocolate Cardamom Cups

You guys, I have a serious cardamom addiction and I have become obsessed with the cardamom + chocolate combo. Last week we found these aaaaahhhhmazing chocolate cups that used cardamom and I just about died and went to chocolate heaven. I loved them so much that (1.) I couldn’t stop thinking and dreaming about them…

Chai Spiced Buckwheat Pancakes

Hello! Talk about sharing this way later than I had “planned.” I actually had this all scheduled to post early last week, but then I decided I wasn’t the biggest fan of the photos (I really never am) AND then a few days ago I wanted to try one last adjustment…I cut two ingredients and…
